— Ace Dire news. But I suppose it was inevitable. And, I suppose, also necessary. They'll have to be beaten at some point.
Shi'ite militiamen, who melted away from Baghdad when U.S. and Iraqi troops began their security crackdown seven weeks ago, are rolling back into the city with fresh Iranian training, Iraqi and other officials said.
It is not clear whether the radical Shi'ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr is in control of the newly trained group, which some Iraqis describe as a "secret army" trained and equipped by Iran.
U.S. forces are concerned that, despite Shi'ite leaders' assurances that they have pulled their fighters off the streets, uncooperative militias will return and seek to destabilize efforts to secure the city.
Videotapes and other evidence of Iranian propaganda have been found on people recently detained in Sadr City, said a member of one of the multiple Iraqi and U.S. security forces trying to return security to Baghdad.
A new element appears to be entering the territory: an extreme Mahdi Army splinter group that broke off from Sheik al-Sadr, went to Iran for training and started to return, said one Iraqi with intimate knowledge of the group.
"This is a special group, used for special operations, not controlled by Muqtada al-Sadr. This is a secret army," said the Iraqi, who asked not to be identified for fear of reprisals. "They work for Iranian intelligence. They have good weapons, good salary."
The group's objectives are not clear, but the Iraqi said he thought the goal was to exacerbate simmering strife between Sunnis and Shi'ites.
The daily number of sectarian executions is creeping up again in some neighborhoods of Baghdad, despite an enormous coordinated security effort by U.S. and Iraqi forces that has reduced incidents of violence.
Thanks to amish.
122 Dead In Blast: The carnage continues.
A lot of the news from Iraq seems to also include Iran. I hope there are some serious contingency plans to deal with their meddleing in the works.
Along with a boatload of documentation to back up actions. Not that the nutroots will believe it anyways.
Have'nt heard anything for a couple of weeks on the Iranian general that "defected". I wonder what's up with that?

Of course, I am sure the fine folks of the MSM will embargo this bad news as well as they have the good news. Cause they're fair like that. Right?

You're stupid for believing this bullshit.
But, you'll get your war, no doubt. And when it comes, there is no doubt who is on the wrong side of history. Again.

Oh, and by the way, Dubya like all good cowboys got Saddam the Killer a fair trial before he was hanged. Just a reminder to all those loudmouths in Tehran. Until January 20, 2009, the Texas Cowboy is still sheriff in this here town. Watch your step. We still have lots of rope.

We'll soon see what an attack on Iran does to our military.
My guess is that an attack on Iran will kill somewhere around 40% of your military, not to mention whatever goats they happen to be humping at the time.
You'd better get all this funny shit posted quickly Ali, I doubt you'll have electricity to run that little shitbox computer of yours much longer.
Hey, I've always liked that video of the crazed rabble dumping the stinking corpse of Khomenei out of his coffin in the middle of the fucking street. Is that an Iranian tradition? I'd love to see that clip again.

Iran is a natural ally. But cheney fucked that up.
You dumbasses are as wrong about the coming war as you are about the present war. Because you are ignorant fuckheads. Know-nothing fuckheads.
That's why you read the WashingtonTimes. Tools.
And when bush loses your precious army, you'll blame "the librawls." Whoever they are.
